The Richmond Chapter provides the local presence and meeting forum to deliver the most tangible benefits associated with AITP. With nearly 100 members representing over 60 local organizations, the Richmond Chapter is an excellent forum for networking, informal discussions, educational seminars, and exchange of ideas.
Meetings take place on the
second Tuesday of each month (except December), at the Embassy
Emerywood Parkway (first intersection west of Broad and Glenside). The usual format is a social time and heavy
appetizers beginning at 5:15, meeting announcements at 6:00 and a
program immediately following. The meetings usually adjourn by
7:15. Guests are welcome. Average attendance is 30 to 45 members and

Education is an important part of every regular meeting of AITP's Richmond Chapter. Programs are varied, reflecting the diversity and interests of our membership. Some programs are technical; most are more general in scope to appeal to a broader audience. Program length is typically 30 to 45 minutes; panel discussions are longer. We meet every month except for December.

We hold tournaments twice a year, in May and October. The last five or six have been held at Scyamore Creek, and that trend will probably continue. Sycamore Creek is located off I-64 West, (from Richmond) to Exit 173 (Rockville-Manakin Exit). You can get more information at their web site. The benefits from these events goes toward our student chapter scholarship fund. Once a year, we either award a scholarship to a student, or contribute toward helping students attend the National Collegiate Conference.
